Today I really did not know what to post. But with a helping hand from my beloved friend Vanity Fair and my fellow blogger Carl from A BLOKES EYEVIEW I just knew posting this look was the right thing to do.... Lool Vanity Fair that's how I been calling her for a while now. Haha I like giving out nicknames to friends. ALSO have you noticed ? SPRING IS FINALLY HERE!!!! The countdown is finally over. Before you know it's SUMMER! But I'm not here to talk about spring this time. I'm writing you to tell my urban story.

After many years I evaluated my path. And I feel like I've evolved from this jungle guy to the urban guy who has a story to tell. Here I am, out of the jungle into the urban. 

The journey of a man from jungle to urban is a hard one. In essence a jungle is often envisioned as a less civilised space outside the control of civilisation. My jungle has been my comfort-zone , my thoughts, ' Jon's Space '  where no-one can't tell you nothing and everybody is wrong. You know Tarzan and his people also had their very own habits and beliefs, well I kind of was Tarzan. Living in my own world. But life and it's circumstances can change a man. With time I learned , I grew, I laughed, I cried, I won , I lost, I fell and I have risen! All those situations a man has got to go through in order to be a man in the urban. 

Urban is crowded, Urban is loud, Urban is where I got to know my first love, my first drink, my first puff, my first danger. Urban is challenging. It challenges you to survive amongst different cultures , from every corner on the globe ( Africa , America, Asia, Europe ) . I learned - and still learning - to deal with the clash of my African culture and the European one. That made me the young urban Jon I iz today!




Thanks for reading. Whats your urban story ?

You fashion beast! Breaking free from the jungle to take on the concrete, brilliant! I just love how your post tell a story without me even having to read the text. As for the fashion, the purposeful tattered tee is perfect. As for the jacket, love the double header zip-away closer. The fact the you opened the zip from the bottom creates a great visual line that mimics the zippers on each side of the chest. Another fantastic ensemble.
